Abstract

Fish meal (FM) is the main protein source in aquaculture diets owing to its palatability and quality. Available quantities of FM have remained constant for the past several decades; however, demand has dramatically increased due to its inclusion in diets used for the global aquaculture industry....

Abstract

Black soldier fly larvae (BSFL) meal, produced from the larvae of Hermetia illucens, has shown promise as a fish meal (FM) replacement in diets for rainbow trout, catfish and tilapia, but has not been examined as an alternative protein source in shrimp diets. Six isonitrogenous (35% crude protein,...

Abstract

Quantities of fish meal (FM) have remained level for the past several decades; however, demand has dramatically increased because of its inclusion in all animal production as a high-quality protein source. Soybean meal (SBM) is the most widely used plant-protein ingredient for replacing various...

Abstract

Two feeding trials were conducted in a closed system with Nile tilapia Oreochromis niloticus fry (mean weight, 0.10 g; experiment 1) and juveniles (mean weight, 2.84 g; experiment 2) to examine the effects of total replacement of fish meal (FM), with and without supplementation of DL-methionine...

Abstract

Distillers' grains with solubles (DGS) are reviewed as a less expensive plant protein source in fish diets to replace fish meal partially or totally. Although soyabean meal has been considered the most nutritious plant protein source, growth tends to be reduced in fish fed on diets in which it...

Abstract

Replacement of fish meal (FM) as a protein source with alternative sources of protein in aquaculture diets has been widely explored in aquaculture. The goal of replacement of FM in production diets is to maintain growth, lower production costs, and increase sustainability. Evaluation of the...

Abstract

A feeding trial was conducted in aquaria with juvenile hybrid tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus × Oreochromis aureus) to evaluate the use of different protein sources in combination with distillers dried grains with solubles (DDGS). Twelve 110-L glass aquaria were stocked with 28 juvenile (2.7±0.5-g)...

Abstract

Four practical diets containing 2% of crude protein (CP) (180 and 280 g kg-1), with or without menhaden fish meal (FM), were fed to Australian red claw Cherax quadricarinatus during a 97-day feeding trial. Growth, survival, body composition and processing traits of pond-cultured red claw were...

Abstract

Economical, nutritious diets for hybrid striped bass (HSTB) are required for the continued expansion and sustainability of this industry. Turkey meal (TM) is a by-product of the US turkey industry and is a potentially-valuable local, alternative protein source for use in aquaculture diets because...

Abstract

In an effort to reduce fish meal (FM) use in diets for sunshine bass, a feeding trial was conducted. Four practical floating diets were formulated to contain 40% protein, similar energy levels, and without FM. A fifth diet was formulated to contain 30% FM and served as the control diet. Ten fish...
